Hi Everyone!! This article will share Problem Solving Questions & Answers.
Written by George Ansell, the poem is a fun-filled poem. It describes how a child cunningly coerces his teacher to show him how to solve a particular problem.
In my previous posts, I have shared the questions & answers of The Turning Point and Little By Little so, you can check these posts as well.

Question 5: What was the easy way that Jack found to solve the sum?
Answer: He went to Miss Clark and copied the answer instead of doing it himself.
Question 6: Jack’s parents knew that he had difficulty in solving a sum. Why do you think they did not solve the sum for him?
Answer: Jack’s parents knew that he had difficulty in solving a sum but they did not solve the sum for him because they wanted him to be an independent child.
Question 7: Jack repeatedly did the sum incorrectly so the teacher worked it out for him. Do you think getting others to solve your problems is right? Give reasons for your answer.
Answer: No, I don’t think getting others to solve our problems is right because teachers give assignments or problem sums to students for their practice. This also helps them to determine how well the lessons are being understood by the students.
So, these were Problem Solving Questions & Answers.
